Most people are familiar with the PlasmaCam, so I will save all the majority of them pictures. This is cutting the ash clean out and end cap for the fire box.

This plate is tacked on, and is the adapter to marry the fire box to the smoking chamber.

A few welding shots. We spaced the plates with 1/8" or 3/32" Tig rod for a opportunity for better penetration. Since it is short arc transfer, who knows how the fusion is. I know I looked at the amps a few times and was normally above 140A so I'm happy.

A shot of a wild and a gusset from the bottom of the smoke chamber to the side of the for box. I arbitrarily pitched a 30* and 60* with a 16" distance between the long ends.

After all the welding on the ends was complete, we need it at a more manageable height to work on.

JB supplied the chimney pipe. He and Brian laid out and torched out a nice 22.5* miter. Brian welded the bottom one and Jason as pictured welded the top.

Chimney welded on, pad eyes on. This thing actually picks evenly without trying to balance.

I'm happy for the great progress. Thanks to Neal, Jason, and Brian for helping and donating a few parts.

I don't know who the fellow is in your last picture in post 16, but I thought I was looking at myself about 30 years ago. Same beard and hairline.
